Paediatric Eczema

Generally what is the best advice to give parents of babies/toddlers with eczema in terms of products (so many to choose from :? ) and would antihistamines be recommended for itch?

Re: Paediatric Eczema

Dear Foxylady99,

Thank you for your question. This true there is a lot of products! Generally ointment are more effective than creams and lotions but are greasier. Balneum plus cream is good for itching. Eczmol cream is very effective anti microbial cream. Here are some to try epaderm cream and ointment, CeraVe cream, aveeno cream, cetrabene cream and ointment, balneum plus cream. Don’t forget about bath addictives like Oilatum.

I hope this is helpful.
Best wishes,
